great

The stars speak for themselves but I will add that my Spanish did improve. I will probably buy something like this or in the series again. I found myself recognizing words covered in Duolingo so I think the stories are a great addition to the overall language experience. I would have liked a pdf copy of the stories to check vocabulary.

Great for Castilian Spanish learners

I’m happy with this audiobook because I plan to spend time in Spain and I want to learn the appropriate pronunciations and verb conjugations for my destination. Larraz has clear pronunciation and is pleasant to listen to. I’m too much of a beginner to judge how interesting the stories are or how appropriate the grammar and overall vocabulary may be for beginners, but I am able to pick out many familiar words and phrases. I was not enthusiastic in my high school Spanish classes 20 years ago, so I’m thrilled about that!
I’ve found the Kindle version of this book on Amazon, so my next step is to order it so that I can delve deeper into the vocabulary and comprehension. If you’re as much of a beginner as me, it will help to know that the summaries and multiple-choice questions etc. are in Spanish.
I wish there were summaries in English, or a key vocabulary list for each story, so I wouldn’t need to rely on literally looking up individual words and phrases. But I get really bored with language apps and I’m probably starting on stories with less skill than most people.

Great, fun way to learn Spanish vocabulary!

Reading these short stories is an innovative and fun way to build my Spanish comprehension and vocabulary. Once I started reading, I did not want to stop. I have been improving comprehension and building my vocabulary and my confidence. I also purchased the audio version which has also improved my listening comprehension. Thank you Olly. Please keep writing new books in Spanish. These have been a great help.

This is not for beginners

What disappointed you about Spanish Short Stories for Beginners, Volume 2?

This is very difficult to follow and there is no help or references.

What could Olly Richards have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

It would be nice to have a written book to refer to and/or an english synopsis of the stories in case the listener was having difficulty understand. My spanish professor
warned me and she was right.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Susana Larraz?

Narrator was fine.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Spanish Short Stories for Beginners, Volume 2?

I didn't understand enough to be able to comment on this.

Liked this book

I liked this book, though it's not exactly for beginners. Short stories divided into even smaller parts, that makes listening and memorising new words easier.
Some plots are more interesting, others less, but make a fascinating story within limits of A-level book's vocabulary is almost impossible.
